White Bird of Paradise Bio
Native to tropical South Africa, White Bird of Paradise graces our spaces while towering to great heights.Playfully hanging like birds in flight, its long and broad leaves naturally split so to allow wind to pass through in the wild. A royal plant if there ever was one, it received its scientific name, Strelitzia nicolai, from Her Highness Queen Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz of England - lover of botany and the arts.
